using clinton's policies again, it's important to remember who was wrong and what the effect will be of those policies. if they are making the same arguments that proved to be wrong the last time we tried this, well, then the role of the media should be able to do that out loudly, even on sunday morning, which happened this weekend on "meet the press" because lawrence was there. first look is up next. >>> right now on first look, it is crunch time in washington, president obama ratchets up the pressure on lawmakers as they try to hammer out a deal on the fiscal cliff before the holiday recess. >>> new details on a navy s.e.a.l. who died during a daring mission in afghanistan. >>> plus, a fireball over texas, and more dogs behind the wheel. good morning, even. i'm lynn berry. there is a renewed sense urgency in washington as house members returned to town today with just 21 days left to avert that so-called fiscal cliff, and if the framework for an agreement isn't reached by the end of the week, lawmakers could be spending christmas in d.c. tracie potts has those good morning.

"the rachel maddow show" starts right now. >> good evening, ed. thanks. and thanks to you at home for joining us this hour. it was a strange bombshell in washington today. a little bit of news that came from an unexpected source. bob woodward got his hands on an audio recording of the top commanding general in afghanistan meeting off the record with a fox news analyst. the meeting took place last spring. it was general david petraeus who was at the time commander of all u.s. forces in the war in afghanistan. and on the tape, fox news analyst says that she was asked by her boss, by the chairman of fox news to pass along some very specific advice for general petraeus. >> if you're offered chairman, take it. if you're offered anything else, don't take it. resign in six months and run for president. okay? and i know you're not running for president, but at some point when you go to new york next, you may want to just chat with roger. i just say what i have suggested and that we've discu

"politics nation" with al sharpton starts right now. >> thanks, chris. and thanks to you for tuning in. tonight's lead, battleground michigan. president obama went to michigan today to confront a crisis that began there. but that matters to every state in the country. republicans in michigan, despite losing to state by 3 million votes to president obama have launched an extreme attack on core democratic policies. they are now pushing a far right agenda to go take down union rights and women's rights. we've seen this in wisconsin and ohio and virginia. now, it's in michigan. president obama went to an au auto-plan where he ripped the gop plan and crippled the state's labor unions. >> what we shouldn't be doing is taking away your rights to bargain for better wages. [ applause ] >> you know, these so called right to work laws, they don't have to do with economics, they have everything to do with politics. what they're really talking about is giving you the right to work for less money. you only have to look to michigan where workers were instrument
using a file that you can down load on the internet. you can actually down load it right here. i have one on my computer. it makes me wonder about the next time nbc comes and checks my computer. this is what happens when a person fits a lower receiver on a gun that is not regulated when they printed it with a 3d printer. this is the video they released of themselves firing bullets out of it. as you can see, the 3d gun failed and busted apart after it fired about six rounds, which makes it yes, a gun, but the technical term for what kind of gun it is is it is a crappy gun because it blew apart. but this kind of thing is not going to stay a crappy gun for long. not when you can get this far with stuff you can find around the house. for all the work that has gone into thinking about who is allowed to have a gun in america and where you can buy one and what kinds of guns people are allowed to have, that all kind of goes out the window. people can just down load their chosen weapon at home and have it made manifests at their desk, as a fully functioning real-life weapon. we are not far off

closing story. great interview, man. thank you. thank you to those of you at home for joining us for this hour. after what has been honestly an amazing day of news. it was 3:342 eastern this afternoon when nbc news, network news broke into regular programming with an exclusive special report. watch. ♪ >> this is an nbc news special report. here's brian williams. >> good day. we're coming on the air right now to break exclusive word that the united states ambassador to the united nations, ambassador susan rice, has transmitted word to the president of the united states that she is withdrawing her own name from any future consideration for nomination to become perhaps the next secretary of state following hillary rodham clinton. >> that was the news broken today by nbc at 3:40 in the afternoon. susan rice remains the u.s. ambassador to the united nations. and a high-profile one at that. she's known for being very close to president obama, a long-time friend and ally for the president. she's also known for being blunt. and for being aggressively intelligent. she is a rhodes schola

untruth lost. it's for that very reason. we were, all of us, paying attention because it really mattered. that's "hardball" for now. "politics nation" with al sharpton starts right now. >> thanks, chris. and thanks for tuning in. tonight's lead, republicans are picking a fight they can't win. new evidence today that president obama is in a strong position in this nation's fight for fairness. and republicans are on the losing end of this fight. now, new polls show 65% of americans believe the president does have a mandate to raise taxes on the wealthy. 62% say he's got a mandate to protect medicare. and 64% says he's got a mandate to protect social security. that is a winning hand. the president has it and he knows it. >> i'm pretty confident that republicans would not hold middle class taxes hostage to try to protect tax cuts for high income individuals. >> and get this. 160 ceos from america's biggest companies are also now saying it's time to raise taxes on the rich. but, speaker john boehner is sticking to his talking points; at least publically. he's refusing to budge. >> the longer
guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun. politicians have no business and no authority denying us the right, the ability, and the moral imperative to protect ourselves and our loved ones from harm. i call on congress today to act immediately to appropriate whatever is necessary to put armed police officers in every single school in this nation. this is the time, this is the day for decisive action. >> this is the beginning of a serious conversation. we won't be taking questions today. >>> the friday before christmas and it is a busy day in washington, d.c. the president just made his announcement that senator john kerry of massachusetts is his choice to succeed hillary clinton as secretary of state. but his business yea day started with a moment of silence to remember the victims at sandy hook elementary school in newtown, connecticut. from wall street to main street, millions of americans stopped to remember the 20 children whose precious lives were so senselessly cut short in a high-tech hail of bullets. [ bell tolling ] they stopped to remember the children, chase, charlotte, d
of a task force to curb gun violence. >> if those of us who were sent here to serve the public trust can summon even one tiny iota of the courage those teachers, that principal, in newtown summoned on friday, if cooperation and common sense prevail, then i'm convinced we can make a sensible, intelligent way to make the united states of america a safer -- >> well, the president's statement gets largely overshadowed by questions about the fiscal cliff, a final question hits home. >> this is not the first issue, the first incident with horrific gun violence of your four years. where have you been? >> well, here's where i've been, jake, i've been president of the united states dealing with the worst economic crisis since the great depression, an auto industry on the verge of collapse, two wars. i don't think i've been on vacation. and, so, i think all of us have to do some reflection on how we prioritize what we do here in washington. >>> in newtown today, funerals for five of the victims, including principal dawn hochsprung and teacher victoria soto. classes will resume for sandy
karins. this is "way too early." thanks for being up with us on this 12/12/12. there's a lot to get to this morning, including a new law in the car capital of america, as republicans in michigan passed right-to-work legislation despite large union protests. we'll have the governor's reaction, straight ahead. >>> also, north korea successfully launched a long-range rocket, putting an unidentified object into orbit and putting the region on high alert. >>> but first, we have a developing story back here in the states. in a suburb of portland, oregon, three people are dead after a gunman went on a shooting rampage inside a mall filled with holiday shoppers. witnesses say it was a chaotic scene inside the mall as the man reportedly dressed in body armor and wearing a white mask opened fire with a high-power rifle. this morning, investigators are trying to learn more about the motive and the suspect who police say shot himself to death. nbc's jay gray joins us from portland with the latest details. jay? >> reporter: hey, there. yeah, bill, just a tragedy unfolded here yesterday afternoon

"the art of power." >> so you know why i'm doing this. last night, mika goes to madison square garden thinking she's going to see one direction and teenage girls screaming and all that. >> yeah. >> instead, her car gets sidetracked, she winds up at the 92nd street "y," and there are a bunch of screaming girls at the "y." jon meacham's new number one selling book. >> i tried to hand your book out last night at the concert. they weren't interested. >> well, they've probably already got it. >> i've never been to a pop concert. >> did it change your life? >> i have never witnessed such an epic meltdown on the part of thousands and thousands of teenage girls. >> metdown. screaming -- >> screaming. >> other than the group that was at the 92nd street "y" last night that screamed at jon meacham. he was throwing wigs at them. >> jefferson versus one directio
rate of 3.1% and risk sparking another recession. joining us now to break it down from washington is cnbc's john harwood. thanks for being here. >> hey, ari. >> remind us where we were before plan b, how far apart were the last comprehensive offers between the president and negotiators? >> a few hundred billion dollars, which is a lot of money, sounds like a lot of money, but in the context of a ten-year budget deal when you have some very large programs that can be tweaked one way or another, is not that much. they were within shouting distance if the speaker could bring his caucus along to support the deal that he was promoting and getting close to striking with the president, but it's clear from the failure of plan b he could not bring them along for that deal, and the real question now, ari, is whether or not the speaker is going to be willing to take to the house floor something that could pass with a preponderance of democratic votes and significant chunk of republicans. i think in the end whatever is done, whether it happens before january 1st or after january 1st, that wil
use the state purposely to come to conclusion and how to this day, those young men that lost 7-13 years of their life still not given any compensation. they were advocates on both sides. i was an advocate that believed in them. we're not talking about advocates here. we're talking about police. we're talking about people with the power of the state that had children with no lawyers or paren parents make confessions that they coached into and no one stepping forward to compensate anything. we'll discuss that next wednesday. thanks for watching. i'm al sharpton. "hardba "hardball" starts right now. >>> good ef ebbing. president obama deserves the best possible secretary of state. it's been my view some distance from the white house, that the president was truly undecided on whom this person should be. late today, ambassador rice's removal of herself from this situation made this situation through the pain involved easier. john kerry, if he is the one appointed, could end up a fabulous secretary of state. somebody to make this country truly proud. he lost the presidency by a singl

himself, a noble attribute most of us take as quiet courage. as embarrassing as it is to admit he is one of the few top politicians in this democratic country to master foreign languages. not a small talent in world diplomacy. i like kerry because he's had the guts to run for office just like hillary clinton. he's had the nerve to stick his neck out and ask the voter to like him or not like him, to trust him or not trust him. that to me is the key to troou democratic government. i've said so before. i hope the president makes him his secretary of state. it would be the first strong move to building a powerful second term cabinet, to building the team that will with god's blessing take barack obama into global history. we americans need to be the peacemakers, john kerry can help barack obama be just that. joining me now is nbc news chief white house correspondent and political director chuck todd and t"the washington post" he's nia malika henderson. do you know when the president decided with or along with ambassador rice to decide that she should formally remove herself from consideratio
